Transcript

Pongo and Sir Ector/Pongo Gets Tricked

Narrator: "Pongo is a dalmatian who lives in a big house in Disneyland. He's a cheeky little dalmatian with four legs, black spots and a tail.

He's a fussy little dalmatian too, always bringing flowers about ready for the big Disney Characters to take on long journeys.

And when Disney Characters come in, he takes the flowers away so that the big Disney Characters can go and rest.

Pongo thinks no Disney Character works as hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Sir Ector, the biggest and proudest man of all.

Pongo likes barking rudely at him."

Pongo: "Wake up, lazybones, why don't you work hard, like me?"

Narrator: "One day, after taking some flowers on a journey, Sir Ector arrived back at the sidings, very tired. He was just going to sleep when Pongo came up in his cheeky way."

Pongo: "Wake up, lazybones, do some hard work for a change! You can't catch me!"

Narrator: "And off he ran laughing.

Instead of going to sleep again, Sir Ector thought how he could get back at Pongo.

One morning, Pongo wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His stamina was low and there was not enough strength. It was nearly time for the express. People were waiting, but the flowers weren't ready.

At last, Pongo started."

Pongo: "Oh dear, oh dear!"

Narrator: "He yawned.

He fussed into the station where Sir Ector was waiting."

Sir Ector: "Hurry up, you."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Pongo: "Hurry yourself!"

Narrator: "Replied Pongo.

Sir Ector began making his plan."

Sir Ector: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "I will."

Narrator: "And almost before the flowers stopped moving, Sir Ector reversed quickly and held the first flower's petal."

Sir Ector: "Get in quickly, please."

Narrator: "He whistled.

Pongo usually pushed behind the flowers to help them star, but they always let go of him first. This time, Sir Ector started so quickly, they forgot to let go of Pongo. Sir Ector's chance had come.

Sir Ector: "Come on, come on!"

Narrator: "Puffed Sir Ector to the flowers.

The line went faster and faster, too fast for Pongo. He wanted to stop, but he couldn't!"

Pongo: "Hey, hey, stop, stop!"

Sir Ector: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Laughed Sir Ector."

Flowers: "You can't get away, you can't get away!"

Narrator: "Laughed the flowers.

Poor Pongo was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath, and his paws hurt him, but he had to go on."

Pongo: "I shall never be the same again."

Narrator: "He thought sadly."

Pongo: "My paws will be quite worn out."

Narrator: "At last, they stopped at a station.

Pongo let go, and he felt very silly and exhausted.

Next, he went onto a turntable, thinking of everyone laughing at him.

And then he ran onto a siding, out of the way."

Sir Ector: "Well, little Pongo."

Narrator: "Chuckled Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Now you know what hard work means, don't you?"

Narrator: "Poor Pongo couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest, and had a long, long drink.

He went home very slowly, and was careful afterwards never to be cheeky to Sir Ector again."

Hercules and Sir Ector/Hercules Helps Out

Narrator: "One day, Hercules was in the house where he lived with the other Disney Characters. They were all bigger than Hercules and boasted about it."

Sir Ector: "The driver won't choose you again."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "He wants strong Disney Characters like us."

Narrator: "But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Hercules."

Driver and Fireman: "Would you like to come out today?"

Hercules: "Oh, yes, please!"

Narrator: "Said Hercules. So he had his breakfast, gained lots of stamina, and Hercules puffed away.

The other Disney Characters were very cross at being left behind.

Hercules worked hard all day. The flowers thought he was very kind and the driver was very pleased."

Hercules: "I'm going out again tomorrow."

Narrator: "Hercules told the other Disney Characters that night."

Hercules: "What do you think of that?"

Narrator: "But he didn't hear what they thought, for he was so tired and happy, that he fell asleep at once.

Next morning, Hercules woke up to find nothing had changed. Sir Ector was still boasting."

Sir Ector: "You watch me, little Hercules, as I rush through with the express. That will be a splendid sight for you.

Good-bye, little Hercules. Look out for me this afternoon."

Narrator: "Hercules went off to do some arranging.

Hercules liked arranging. It was fun playing with pirates. He would come up quietly and give them a push. Then he would stop and the silly pirates would go bump into each other.

Pirates: "Oh!"

Narrator: "They cried."

Pirates: "Whatever is happening?"

Narrator: "Hercules played until there were no more pirates. Then he stopped to rest.

Presently, he heard some grumbling.

Sir Ector was very cross. Instead of nice, shining flowers, he was taking some dirty pirates."

Sir Ector: "Pirates, pirates, pirates!"

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Sir Ector: "The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!"

Narrator: "Hercules laughed, and went to find some more pirates.

Then there was trouble."

Porter: "Sir Ector can't get up the hill."

Narrator: "The porter called to Hercules' driver."

Porter: "Will you take Hercules and push him, please?"

Narrator: "They found Sir Ector halfway up, and very cross. His driver and fireman were talking to him severely."

Sir Ector's Driver and Fireman: "You're not trying!"

Sir Ector: "I can't do it!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "The noisy pirates hold a man back so."

Narrator: "Hercules' driver came up."

Hercules' Driver: "We've come to push."

Sir Ector: "No use at all!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Hercules' Driver: "You wait and see."

Narrator: "Replied Hercules' driver.

They brought the pirates back to the bottom of the hill."

Hercules: "I'm ready!"

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Sir Ector: "No good."

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could."

Sir Ector: "I can't do it! I can't do it! I can't do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Sir Ector."

Hercules: "I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Hercules. Hercules pushed and puffed, and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could. And almost before he realized it, Sir Ector found himself at the top of the hill."

Sir Ector: "I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!"

Narrator: "He said proudly. He forgot all about Hercules and didn't wait to say 'Thank you'.

Hercules was left out of breath and far behind. He ran onto the next station, and there he found that the driver and fireman were very pleased with him. The fireman gave him a nice long drink, and the driver said,"

Hercules' Driver: "I'll get out my outfits tomorrow, and give you a bright orange suit. Then you'll be the smartest Disney Character in Disneyland."

The Sad Story of Baloo/Come Out, Baloo!

Narrator: "Once a bear taking some flowers was afraid of a few drops of rain. It went into a tunnel and squeaked through its head and wouldn't come out again.

The bear's name is Baloo. His driver and fireman argued with him, but he would not move."

Baloo: "The rain will spoil my lovely gray fur."

Narrator: "He said. The guard blew his whistle till he had no more breath and waved his flag till his arms ached. But Baloo still stayed in the tunnel and kicked dirt at him."

Baloo: "I'm not going to spoil my lovely gray fur for you."

Narrator: "Then, along came Mickey Mouse, the mouse in charged of all the Disney Characters in Disneyland."

Mickey Mouse: "We will pull you out."

Narrator: "Said Mickey. But Baloo only kicked dirt at him."

Narrator: "Everyone pull except Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Because, (cough)"

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "My doctor had forbidden me to pull."

Narrator: "But still Baloo stayed in the tunnel.

Then they tried pushing from the other end. Mickey said,"

Mickey Mouse: "One, two, three, push!"

Narrator: "But he didn't help."

Mickey Mouse: "(cough) My doctor has forbidden me to push."

Narrator: "He said. They pushed and pushed and pushed. But still Baloo stayed in the tunnel.

At last, Pongo came along. The guard waved his red flag and stopped him. Everyone argued with Baloo."

Passengers: "Look, it has stopped raining."

Narrator: "They said."

Baloo: "Yes, but it will begin again soon."

Narrator: "Said Baloo."

Baloo: "And what would become of my gray fur then?"

Narrator: "Pongo pushed and puffed, and pushed as hard as ever he could. But still Baloo stayed in the tunnel.

Eventually, even Mickey Mouse gave up."

Mickey Mouse: "We shall take away your road."

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "And leave you here for always and always and always."

Narrator: "They took up the old road and built a wall in front of him so Baloo couldn't get out of the tunnel anymore.

All he could do was to watch the Disney Characters rushing through the other tunnel. He was very sad because he thought no one would ever see his lovely gray fur again. As time went on, Hercules and Sir Ector would often pass by. Hercules would say,"

Hercules: "Hello."

Narrator: "And Sir Ector would say,"

Sir Ector: "Serves you right!"

Narrator: "Poor Baloo had no strength to answer. His stamina had gone low. Soot and dirt from the tunnel spoiled his lovely gray fur anyway. He wondered if he would ever be allowed to take flowers again. But I think he deserved his punishment, don't you?"

Hercules, Sir Ector and Baloo/Baloo to the Rescue

Narrator: "Sir Ector always took the express flowers. He was proud of being the only Disney Character strong enough to do so. It was full of important characters, like Mickey Mouse, and Sir Ector was seeing how fast he could go."

Sir Ector: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "He said."

Flowers: "Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, trickety-trock."

Narrator: "Said the flowers. In a minute, Sir Ector would see the tunnel where Baloo stood bricked up and lonely."

Baloo: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "Thought Baloo."

Homer: "Why did I worry about rain spoiling my lovely fur? Will Mickey Mouse ever forgive me and let me out again?"

Sir Ector: "I'm going to whistle at Baloo."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector. He was almost there when... (Wheeshing sound), and there was Sir Ector going slower and slower in a cloud of dust. His driver stopped him."

Sir Ector: "What has happened to me?"

Narrator: "Asked Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "I feel so weak."

Sir Ector's Driver: "You've pulled a muscle."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Sir Ector's Driver: "You can't take the flowers anymore."

Sir Ector: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "We were going so nicely too. And look, there's Baloo laughing at me."

Narrator: "Everyone came to see Sir Ector."

Mickey Mouse: "Humph!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "I never liked these big Disney Characters, always going wrong. Send for another Disney Character at once."

Narrator: "While the guard went to find one, they brought Sir Ector in a siding out of the way.

Hercules was the only Disney Character left."

Hercules: "I'll come and try."

Narrator: "He said."

Sir Ector: "Pooh!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "That's no use. Hercules can't push the flowers."

Narrator: "Hercules puffed and pushed and pushed and puffed, but he couldn't move the heavy flowers."

Sir Ector: "I told you so."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Why not let Baloo try?"

Mickey Mouse: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "I will.

Will you help take the flowers, Baloo?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Baloo: "Oh yes."

Narrator: "Said Baloo.

When Baloo had got up strength, he puffed out. He was dirty and covered with cobwebs."

Baloo: "Ooh! I'm stiff, I'm stiff."

Narrator: "He groaned."

Mickey Mouse: "Have a run to ease your legs, and find a turntable."

Narrator: "Said Mickey.

When Baloo came back, he felt much better. Then they hooked him up."

Hercules: "Peep, peep."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "I'm ready."

Baloo: "Peep, peep, peep."

Narrator: "Said Baloo."

Baloo: "So am I."

Hercules and Baloo: "Pull hard. We'll do it. Pull hard. We'll do it."

Narrator: "They puffed together."

Hercules and Baloo: "We've done it together. We've done it together."

Narrator: "Said Hercules and Baloo."

Flowers: "You've done it, hurray! You've done it, hurray!"

Narrator: "Sang the flowers. Everyone was excited. Mickey leaned out to wave at Hercules and Baloo, but they were going so fast that his hat blew off into a field where a goat ate it for tea.

They never stopped till they came to the station at the end of the path. The passengers all said "Thank you". And Mickey Mouse promised Baloo some new fur.

On their way home, Hercules and Baloo helped Sir Ector back to the house. All three Disney Characters are now great friends. Baloo doesn't mind the rain now. He knows that the best way to keep his fur nice is not to run into tunnels but to ask his driver to wash him when the day's work is over."

Pongo's Flowers/A Big Day for Pongo

Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatian was grumbling to the other Disney Characters."

Pongo: "I spend my time pulling flowers about, ready for you to take out on journeys."

Narrator: "The other Disney Characters laughed."

Pongo: "Why can't I take passengers, too?"

Sir Ector: "You're too impatient."

Narrator: "They said."

Sir Ector: "You'd be sure to leave something behind."

Pongo: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I'll show you."

Narrator: "One night, he and Baloo were alone. Baloo was ill. The men worked hard, but he didn't get better.

He felt just as bad next morning. Baloo usually took the first passengers, and Pongo had to get his flowers ready."

Pongo: "If Baloo is ill,"

Narrator: "He thought."

Pongo: "Perhaps I shall take his flowers."

Narrator: "Pongo ran to find the flowers."

Pongo: "Come along, come along!"

Narrator: "He fussed."

Flowers: "There's plenty of time, there's plenty of time."

Narrator: "They grumbled.

Pongo took them to the platform, and wanted to run around in front at once.

But his driver wouldn't let him."

Pongo's Driver: "Don't be impatient, Pongo!"

Narrator: "Pongo waited and waited.

People got on board, the guard and stationmaster walked up and down, the porter secured the plants, and still, Baloo didn't come. Pongo got more and more excited.

Mickey Mouse came to see what was the matter, and the guard and the stationmaster told him about Baloo."

Mickey Mouse: "Find another Disney Character."

Narrator: "He ordered."

Guard and Stationmaster: "There's only Pongo."

Narrator: "They said."

Mickey Mouse: "You'll have to do it then, Pongo. Be quick now."

Narrator: "So Pongo ran round in front and backed down onto the flowers ready to start."

Pongo's Driver: "Don't be impatient, Pongo."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "Wait till everything is ready."

Narrator: "But Pongo was too excited to listen.

What happened then, nobody knows. Perhaps the first flower forgot to grab Pongo, or perhaps Pongo was given the signal by mistake. Anyhow, Pongo started. As they passed the first signal tower, men waved and shouted, but he didn't stop."

Pongo: "They're waving because I'm such a splendid dalmatian."

Narrator: "He thought importantly."

Pongo: "Baloo says it's hard to pull flowers, but I think it's easy.

Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "He puffed, pretending to be like Sir Ector."

Pongo: "People have never seen me taking passengers before. It's nice of them to wave."

Narrator: "And he barked."

Pongo: "Ruff, ruff! Thank you."

Narrator: "Then he came to a signal at 'Danger'."

Pongo: "Bother!"

Narrator: "He said."

Pongo: "I must stop, and I was going so nicely, too! What a nuisance signals are."

Narrator: "He called out an angry bark.

The signalman ran up."

Signalman: "Hello, Pongo."

Narrator: "He said."

Signalman: "What are you doing here?"

Pongo: "I'm pulling flowers."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Can't you see?"

Signalman: "Where are your flowers, then?"

Narrator: "Pongo looked back."

Pongo: "Why, bless me!"

Narrator: "He said."

Pongo: "If we haven't left them behind!"

Signalman: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "You'd better go back quickly and fetch them."

Narrator: "Poor Pongo was so sad, he nearly cried.

Pongo's Driver: "Cheer up."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "Let's go back quickly and try again."

Narrator: "At the station, all the passengers were talking at once. They were telling Mickey what a bad place Disneyland was. But when Pongo came back, they saw how sad he was, and couldn't be cross.

He held on to the flowers, and this time he really pulled them.

But for a long time afterwards, the other Disney Characters laughed at Pongo and said,"

Baloo and Donald Duck: "Look, there's Pongo, who wanted to take some passengers, but forgot about the flowers!"

Pongo and the Pirates/Trouble for Pongo

Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatian wouldn't stop being a nuisance. Night after night, he kept the other Disney Characters awake."

Pongo: "I'm tired of pushing flowers. I want to see the world."

Narrator: "The other Disney Characters didn't take much notice, for Pongo was a little dalmatian with a long tongue.

But one night, Hercules came to the house. He was a kind man and felt sorry for Pongo."

Hercules: "I've got some pirates to take home tomorrow. If you take them instead of me, I'll push flowers in the yard."

Pongo: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "That will be nice."

Narrator: "Next morning, Hercules and Pongo asked their drivers, and when they said "Yes", Pongo ran off happily to find pirates.

Now, pirates are silly and noisy. They talk a lot and don't attend to what they are doing. And I'm sorry to say, they play tricks on a Disney Character who is not used to them. Hercules knew all about pirates. He warned Pongo to be careful, but Pongo was too excited to listen.

The shunter fastened the pirates, and when the signal dropped, Pongo was ready. The guard blew his whistle."

Pongo: "Ruff! Ruff!"

Narrator: "Answered Pongo, and started off. But the pirates weren't ready."

Pirates: "Oh, oh, oh!"

Narrator: "They screamed."

Pirates: "Wait, Pongo, wait."

Narrator: "But Pongo wouldn't wait."

Pongo: "Come on, come on."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Pirates: "All right, all right, don't fuss, all right, don't fuss."

Narrator: "Grumbled the pirates.

Pongo began going faster and faster."

Pongo: "Wheeeee!"

Narrator: "He called as he rushed through Baloo's tunnel."

Pongo: "Hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Called Pongo. He was feeling very proud of himself. But the pirates grew crosser and crosser. At last Pongo slowed down as he came to Sir Ector's hill."

Pongo's Driver: "Steady now, steady."

Narrator: "Warned the driver, as they reached the top. He began to put on the brakes."

Pongo: "We're stopping, we're stopping."

Narrator: "Called Pongo."

Pirates: "No, no, no, no!"

Narrator: "Answered the pirates, bumping into each other."

Pirates: "Go on, go on!"

Narrator: "Before the driver could stop them, they had pushed Pongo down the hill and were rattling and laughing behind him.

Poor Pongo tried hard to stop them from making him go too fast."

Pongo: "Stop pushing, stop pushing!"

Narrator: "He hissed. But the pirates took no notice."

Pirates: "Go on, go on!"

Narrator: "They giggled in their silly way."

Pongo: "There's the station. Oh dear, what shall I do?"

Narrator: "He cried. They rattled straight through and swerved into the goods yard. Pongo shut his eyes."

Pongo: "I must stop!"

Narrator: "When he opened his eyes, he saw he had stopped just in front of the buffers. There watching him was Mickey Mouse."

Mickey Mouse: "What are you doing here, Pongo?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Pongo: "I've brought Hercules' pirates."

Narrator: "Pongo answered."

Mickey Mouse: "Why did you come so fast?"

Pongo: "I didn't mean to. I was pushed."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Mickey Mouse: "You've got a lot to learn about pirates then, little Pongo. After pushing them about here for a few weeks, you'll know almost as much about them as Hercules. Then you'll be a Really Useful Dalmatian."

Pongo and the Breakdown Crane/Pongo Saves the Day

Narrator: "Every day, Mickey Mouse came to the station to see the Disney Characters."

Mickey Mouse: "Hello."

Narrator: "He always said to Pongo."

Mickey Mouse: "Remember, don't be impatient, Pongo. You can never be as strong and fast as Sir Ector, but you can be a Really Useful Dalmatian. Don't let the silly pirates tease you."

Narrator: "There were lots of pirates, and Pongo worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small trailer and two strange things his driver called cranes."

Pongo's Driver: "That's the breakdown crane."

Narrator: "He told Pongo."

Pongo's Driver: "The cranes are for lifting heavy things, like Disney Characters, and flowers, and pirates."

Narrator: "One day, Pongo was in the yard. Suddenly, he heard a duck screaming."

Donald Duck: "Help! Help!"

Narrator: "A duck came rushing through, much too fast. The duck was Donald, and he was frightened. His webbed feet were on fire."

Donald Duck: "They're pushing me, they're pushing me!"

Narrator: "He panted."

Pirates: "On, on, on!"

Narrator: "Laughed the pirates.

Still screaming,"

Donald Duck: "Help! Help!"

Narrator: "Poor Donald disappeared."

Pongo: "I'd like to teach those pirates a lesson."

Narrator: "Said Pongo the Dalmatian.

Soon came the alarm."

Signalman: "Donald's off the path, the breakdown crane, quickly!"

Narrator: "Pongo grabbed the crane, and off they went.

Pongo worked his hardest."

Pongo: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "He puffed. He wasn't pretending to be like Sir Ector; he really meant it."

Pongo: "Bother those pirates and their tricks. I hope poor Donald isn't hurt."

Narrator: "Donald's driver and fireman were feeling him all over, to see if he was hurt."

Donald Duck's Driver and Fireman: "Never mind, Donald."

Narrator: "They said."

Donald Duck's Driver and Fireman: "It wasn't your fault. It was those webbed feet they gave you. We always said they were no good."

Narrator: "Pongo pushed the breakdown crane alongside. Then he pulled the unhurt pirates out of the way."

Pirates: "Oh, dear, oh, dear!"

Narrator: "They groaned."

Pongo: "Serves you right, serves you right!"

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo.

He was hard at work, puffing backwards and forwards all day."

Pongo: "This will teach you a lesson. This will teach you a lesson."

Narrator: "He told the pirates.

And they answered,"

Pirates: "Yes it will, yes it will."

Narrator: "They left the broken pirates, then with two cranes, they put Donald back on the path.

He tried to move, but he couldn't, so Pongo helped him back home.

Mickey was waiting anxiously for them."

Mickey Mouse: "Well, Pongo,"

Narrator: "He said,"

Mickey Mouse: "I've heard all about it, and I'm very pleased with you. You're a Really Useful Dalmatian.

Donald shall have some proper feet and some new feathers, and you shall have a route all to yourself."

Pongo: "Oh, thank you, sir!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo.

Now Pongo is as happy as can be. He has a route, and two ducks called Abigail and Amelia. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day.

He is never lonely. Hercules and Baloo stop quite often and tell him the news.

Sir Ector is always in a hurry, but never forgets to whistle to Pongo, and Pongo always barks in return."

Donald and the Flowers/Donald Learns a Lesson

Narrator: "Donald Duck was enjoying his life in Disneyland, but he still had a lot to learn."

Mickey Mouse: "You're a special mixed-traffic duck."

Narrator: "Said Mickey Mouse."

Mickey Mouse: "You can take flowers and pirates quite easily, but you must learn by your mistakes."

Narrator: "Donald knew what Mickey meant. He could well remember that dreadful accident on his first day."

Hercules: "Be careful with the flowers, Donald."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "They don't like being bumped."

Narrator: "Everyone came to admire Donald."

Donald Duck: "I'm a really splendid duck."

Narrator: "He thought, and suddenly danced up a sweat. A shower of sweat fell on Mickey's nice new top hat.

Just then, the guard blew his whistle, and Donald thought they had better go."

Donald Duck: "Go on! Go on!"

Narrator: "He puffed to Hercules."

Hercules: "Don't push! Don't push!"

Narrator: "Replied Hercules. The flowers were grumbling too."

Flowers: "Don't go so fast! Don't go so fast!"

Narrator: "But Donald didn't listen.

When at last, they stopped at the next station, two flowers were beyond the platform. They had to go back to drop off their passengers. But no one seemed to know about Mickey's new hat, so Donald felt happier.

Presently, they came to the station where Pongo was waiting with his ducks."

Pongo: "Hello, Donald."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Feeling better? That's right.

Oh, that's my guard's whistle. I must go. I don't know what Mickey Mouse would do without me to run this route."

Narrator: "And he puffed off importantly.

Hercules and Donald passed the field where Donald had had his accident. The fence was mended and the cows were back again.

They ended their journey, and rested before setting off for home. Donald was still wondering what Mickey would have to say about his new hat.

Next morning, Mickey spoke severely to him."

Mickey Mouse: "If you can't behave, I shall take away your white feathers, and have you painted red."

Narrator: "Donald didn't like that at all.

He was very rough with the grumbling flowers as he brought them to the platform."

Donald Duck: "Don't talk! Come on!"

Narrator: "He called to them."

Donald Duck: "Sir Ector never has to fetch his own flowers,"

Narrator: "He huffed to himself."

Donald Duck: "And he only has red hair."

Narrator: "To make Donald even more cross, this time no one came near him."

Donald Duck: "I'll show them!"

Narrator: "He thought.

Donald Duck: "They think Sir Ector is the only Disney Character who can take flowers.

Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Puffed Donald."

Flowers: "You're going too fast! You're going too fast!"

Narrator: "Replied the flowers. Donald laughed and tried to go faster, but the flowers wouldn't let him."

Flowers: "We're going to stop."

Narrator: "They said."

Flowers: "We're going to stop!"

Donald Duck: "What's the matter?"

Narrator: "Donald asked his driver."

Donald Duck's Driver: "The flowers are hard on. Leak in the pot most likely. You've banged the flowers enough to make a leak in anything."

Guard: "How should we mend it?"

Narrator: "Said the Guard."

Donald Duck's Driver: "We'll do it with newspaper and a leather bootlace."

Narrator: "Replied the driver."

Guard: "Well, where is the bootlace coming from?"

Narrator: "Asked the guard."

Donald Duck's Driver: "Ask the passengers."

Narrator: "Said the driver."

Guard: "You have leather bootlace there, I see, sir."

Narrator: "Said the guard to George Banks, a smarty dressed man."

Guard: "Please give it to me."

George Banks: "I won't!"

Narrator: "Said George."

Guard: "Then,"

Narrator: "Said the guard,"

Guard: "I'm afraid we'll all have to stay where we are."

Narrator: "The passengers all said what a bad place Disneyland was. Then they told George how bad he was instead. Everyone was very cross.

At last, he handed his laces over.

The driver tied a pad of newspaper tightly around the hole in the pot, and Donald was able to take the flowers.

But he was a sadder and wiser Donald, and took care never to bump flowers again."

Troublesome Pirates/Foolish Pirates

Narrator: "Donald had not seen Mickey Mouse for several days. He was left alone for being naughty and was not even allowed out to work with flowers or pirates in the yard."

Donald Duck: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "He thought."

Donald Duck: "I shall have to stay in here for always and no one will see my white feathers again. All because I went so fast that I made a hole in one of my flowers that had to be mended with, of all things, a passenger's bootlace."

Narrator: "At last, Mickey arrived."

Mickey Mouse: "I see you are sorry, Donald."

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "I hope now you will be a better duck. You have given me a lot of trouble. People are laughing at my land and I don't like that at all."

Donald Duck: "I'm very sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald Duck: "I will try hard to behave."

Mickey Mouse: "That's a good duck."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "I want you to take some pirates for me."

Narrator: "Donald was delighted and puffed away."

Pongo: "Here are your pirates, Donald."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Have you got some bootlaces ready?"

Narrator: "And he ran off laughing."

Pirates: "Uh-oh! Oh!"

Narrator: "Said the pirates."

Pirates: "We want a proper Disney Character. Not a white monster."

Narrator: "Donald took no notice and started as soon as the guard was ready."

Donald Duck: "Come along, come along."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Pirates: "We won't, we won't!"

Narrator: "Screamed the pirates. But Donald didn't care and pull the screeching pirates sternly out of the station.

The pirates tried hard to make him give up, but he still kept on. Sometimes, they'd come to a standstill. And sometimes their feet would run hot. And each time, the trouble had to be put right. And each time, Donald would start again determined not to let them beat him."

Pirates: "Give up, give up! You can't pull us! You can't, you can't!"

Narrator: "Called the pirates."

Donald Duck: "I can and I will! I can and I will!"

Narrator: "Puffed Donald. Slowly but surely, he pulled them along the path.

At last they saw Sir Ector's Hill."

Donald Duck's Driver: "Look out for trouble, Donald."

Narrator: "Warned his driver."

Donald Duck's Driver: "We'll go fast and get them up before they know it. Don't let them stop you."

Narrator: "So Donald went faster and soon they were half way up."

Donald Duck: "I'm doing it, I'm doing it!"

Narrator: "He panted."

Donald Duck: "Will the top never come?"

Narrator: "Then, with a sudden jerk, it all came easier."

Donald Duck: "I've done it, I've done it!"

Narrator: "He puffed."

Donald Duck: "Hooray! It's easy now."

Narrator: "But his driver shut off steam."

Donald Duck's Driver: "They've done it again. We've left our tail behind. Look."

Narrator: "The last pirates were running backwards down the hill. The rope had snapped. But the guard stopped the pirates and got out to warn approaching Disney Characters."

Donald Duck: "That's why it was easy."

Narrator: "Said Donald, as he back the other pirates carefully down."

Donald Duck: "What silly things pirates are! There might had been an accident."

Hercules: "Shall I help you, Donald?"

Narrator: "Called Hercules."

Donald Duck: "No, thank you."

Narrator: "Answered Donald."

Donald Duck: "I'll pull them myself."

Hercules: "Good. Don't let them beat you. You're doing well."

Narrator: "Whistled Hercules, as Donald slowly struggled up the hill."

Donald Duck: "I can do it, I can do it!"

Narrator: "He puffed. He pulled and puffed as hard as he could."

Donald Duck: "I've done it, I've done it!"

Narrator: "He panted.

They reach the station safely and Donald was resting when Hercules pulled up."

Hercules: "Peep, peep!"

Narrator: "He whistled. Then, Donald saw Mickey Mouse."

Donald Duck: "Oh dear! What will he say?"

Narrator: "He asked himself.

But Mickey was smiling."

Mickey Mouse: "I was with Hercules and I saw everything."

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "You made the most troublesome pirates on the path behave. After that, you deserve to keep your white feathers."

Donald and the Express/A Proud Day for Donald

Narrator: "One night, Baloo and Sir Ector were alone with Donald Duck. Although Mickey Mouse was beginning to think well of him, whenever a chance came, the other Disney Characters would talk of nothing but bootlaces."

Baloo and Sir Ector: "Remember the time one had to be used to get you out of trouble, Donald?"

Narrator: "They would tease. Donald tried to get his own back by talking about Disney Characters who got shut up in tunnels and stuck on hills, but they wouldn't listen."

Sir Ector: "You talk too much little Donald."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "A fine strong man like me has something to talk about. I'm the only Disney Character who can take the express flowers. When I'm not there, they need two Disney Characters. Think of that? I've taken express flowers for years and have never once lost my way. I seem to know the right path by instinct."

Narrator: "Every wise Disney Character knows of course that the signalman makes the Disney Characters run on the right path, but Sir Ector was so proud, he had forgotten."

Sir Ector: "Wake up, Donald."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector next morning."

Sir Ector: "It's nearly time for the express. What are you doing? Odd jobs? Ah well, we all have to begin somewhere, don't we? Run along and get my flowers. Don't be late."

Narrator: "Donald went to fetch Sir Ector's flowers. They were all shiny with new petals. He was careful not to bump them, and they follow him smoothly into the station, singing happily,"

Flowers: "We're going away, we're going away."

Donald Duck: "I wish I was going with you."

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald Duck: "I should love to take the express and go flying along the path."

Narrator: "Sir Ector, with much noise, got ready to back down onto the line.

Mickey Mouse was with the flowers with other important people. And as soon so they heard the guard's whistle, Sir Ector started."

Sir Ector: "Look at me now, look at me now."

Narrator: "He puffed, as the flowers glided after him."

Sir Ector: "Goodbye little Donald. See you tomorrow."

Narrator: "Donald watch the line disappear and then went back to work. He pushed some pirates into their proper sidings, and went to fetch the flowers for another Disney Character.

Donald had just brought the flowers to the platform when he heard a mournful noise.

There was Sir Ector trying to sidle into the station without being noticed."

Donald Duck: "Hello, Sir Ector. Is it tomorrow?"

Narrator: "Asked Donald. Sir Ector didn't answer, he just kicked at the ground feebly."

Donald Duck: "Did you lose your way, Sir Ector?"

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Sir Ector: "No, it was lost for me. I turned off the main path and onto the loop. I had to go all around and back again."

Donald Duck: "Perhaps it was instinct."

Narrator: "Said Donald.

Meanwhile, all the passengers hurried to the booking office."

Passengers: "We want our money back!"

Narrator: "They shouted. But Mickey climbed onto a trolley, and blew the guard's whistle so loudly that they all stopped to look at him. Then he promised them a new Disney Character at once."

Mickey Mouse: "Sir Ector can't do it. Will you take it for us, Donald?"

Donald Duck: "Yes, sir. I'll try."

Narrator: "So Donald was hooked up, and everyone got on."

Mickey Mouse: "Do your best, Donald."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Donald Duck: "Come along, come along."

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Flowers: "You're pulling us well, you're pulling us well."

Narrator: "Sang the flowers.

Bridges and stations flashed by, the passengers cheered and they soon reached the station. Everyone said 'Thank you' to Donald, and Mickey Mouse was very impressed."

Mickey Mouse: "Well done!"

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "Would you like to take the express sometimes?"

Donald Duck: "Yes, please!"

Narrator: "Answered Donald.

Next day, when Donald came by, Sir Ector was pushing pirates."

Sir Ector: "I like some quiet work for a change."

Narrator: "He said."

Sir Ector: "I'm teaching these pirates manners. You did well with those flowers I hear. Good, we'll show them."

Narrator: "And he gave his pirates a bump.

Donald and Sir Ector are now good friends. Donald sometimes takes the express to give Sir Ector a rest. Sir Ector never talks about bootlaces, and they are both quite agreed on the subject of pirates."

Pongo and the Guard/Pongo and the Conductor

Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatian is very proud of his route. He thinks it's the most important part of Disneyland. His two ducks, Abigal and Amelia agree with him.

Abigal can only take passengers, but Amelia can take passengers, luggage and the guard. They are both old need new feathers, but Pongo loves them very much.

As they run backwards and forwards along the path, they sing songs to each other. When Pongo starts from a station, he sings,"

Pongo: "Oh, come along, we're rather late, oh, come along, we're rather late."

Narrator: "And the ducks sing,"

Abigal and Amelia: "We're coming along, we're coming along."

Narrator: "They don't mind what Pongo sings to them because they know he is trying to please Mickey Mouse. And they know too that if Pongo is cross, he's not cross with them.

One day, they had to wait for Baloo's passengers, which made Pongo very cross."

Pongo: "How can I run my route properly if Baloo's always late? He doesn't realize that Mickey depends on me."

Narrator: "Pongo barked impatiently. He wanted to leave, but he had to wait for Baloo's passengers.

At last, Baloo came."

Pongo: "Where have been lazybones?"

Narrator: "Asked Pongo."

Baloo: "Oh dear, my body is out of order. No one understands my case. You don't know what I suffer."

Narrator: "Moaned Baloo."

Pongo: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "You're too fat! You need exercise!"

Narrator: "The guard blew his whistle, and Pongo started so quickly that he left him behind. The guard waved his red flag to stop Pongo, but he was well on his way hurrying out of the station."

Pongo: "Come along, come along."

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo. But Amelia didn't want to come."

Amelia: "I've lost my nice guard, I've lost my nice guard."

Narrator: "She sobbed.

Abigal tried to tell Pongo what had happened."

Abigal: "We haven't a guard, we haven't a guard!"

Narrator: "But he was hurrying and wouldn't listen. Abigal and Amelia tried to stop, but they couldn't without the guard."

Abigal and Amelia: "Where is our guard? Where is our guard?"

Narrator: "They cried. But Pongo didn't stop till they came to a signal."

Pongo: "Bother that signal!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "What's the matter?"

Pongo's Driver: "I don't know."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "The guard will tell us in a minute."

Narrator: "They waited and waited, but the guard didn't come."

Pongo: "Ruff, ruff, ruff! Where is the guard?"

Narrator: "Barked Pongo."

Abigal and Amelia: "We've left him behind."

Narrator: "Sobbed Abigal and Amelia together.

Everyone looked, and there was the guard running as fast as he could along the path with his flags in one hand and his whistle in the other. He was very hot. So he had a drink, and told them all about it."

Pongo: "I'm very sorry, Mr. Guard."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Guard: "It wasn't your fault, Pongo."

Narrator: "He replied."

Guard: "Look, the signal is down. We can go. Let's make up for lost time."

Narrator: "Abigal and Amelia were so pleased to have their guard again that they sang,"

Abigal and Amelia: "As fast as you like, as fast as you like."

Narrator: "To Pongo all the way.

They reached the end of the route quicker than ever before."

Pongo Goes Fishing

Narrator: "When Pongo walked along his path, he always looked forward to something special...the sight of the river. As he rumbled over he bridge, he would see people fishing. Pongo often want to stay and watch. But his driver said,"

Pongo's Driver: "No. What would Mickey Mouse say if we were late?"

Narrator: "Every time he met another Disney Character, he would say,"

Pongo: "I want to fish."

Narrator: "But they all had the same answer."

Donald Duck: "Dalmatians don't go fishing."

Pongo: "Silly stick-in-the-muds."

Narrator: "Thought Pongo.

One day he stopped as usual to get a drink of water at the station by the river."

Pongo: "Out of order! Bother!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I'm thirsty."

Pongo's Driver: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "We'll get some water from the river."

Narrator: "They found a bucket and some rope, and went to the bridge.

Then the driver let the bucket down to the water. The bucket was old and had five holes. So they had to fill it, pull it up and give it to Pongo as quickly as they could several times over.

They finished at last."

Pongo: "That's good. That's good."

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo. And Abigal and Amelia ran happily behind.

Suddenly Pongo began to feel a pain in his body. Smoke began to come from him in an alarming way."

Pongo's Driver: "There's too much smoke."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Groaned Pongo."

Pongo: "I'm going to burst! I'm going to burst!"

Narrator: "They fanned away the smoke and struggled on."

Pongo: "I've got such a pain. I've got such a pain."

Narrator: "Pongo hissed.

They stopped just outside the last station, unhooked Abigal and Amelia and ran Pongo, who was still hissing fit to burst, on a siding right out of the way.

Then, while the guard telephoned for a dalmatian inspector, the driver found notices in large letter which he hung on Pongo in front and behind.

DANGER. KEEP AWAY.

Soon General Teagler and Mickey Mouse arrived."

Mickey Mouse and General Teagler: "Cheer up, Pongo."

Narrator: "They said."

Mickey Mouse and General Teagler: "We'll soon put you right."

Narrator: "The driver told them what had happened."

General Teagler: "So his stomach is too full."

Narrator: "Said General Teagler."

General Teagler: "I'll just look inside."

Narrator: "He peered inside. Then he turned to Mickey."

General Teagler: "Excuse me, sir. Please look inside and tell me what you see."

Mickey Mouse: "Certainly, General Teagler."

Narrator: "Replied Mickey. He looked in and nearly fell down in surprise."

Mickey Mouse: "General Teagler,"

Narrator: "He whispered."

Mickey Mouse: "Can you see fish?

Gracious goodness me. How did the fish get there, driver?"

Pongo's Driver: "We must have fished them from the river with our bucket."

Narrator: "Replied Pongo's driver."

Mickey Mouse: "Well, Pongo. So you and your driver have been fishing. But fish don't suit you. We must get them out."

Narrator: "They all took turns at fishing in Pongo while Mickey looked on and told them how to do it. When they had caught all the fish, they had a lovely picnic supper of fish and chips."

Mickey Mouse: "Hmmm. That was good."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "But fish don't suit you, Pongo. So you mustn't do it again."

Pongo: "No sir, I won't."

Narrator: "Said Pongo sadly."

Pongo: "Dalmatians don't go fishing. It's too uncomfortable."

Pongo, Sebastian and the Snow/Sebastian the Crab

Narrator: "Autumn had come to Disneyland. The fields were changing from yellow stubble to brown earth, and a crab was hard at work as Pongo puffed along.

Later, Pongo saw the crab close by."

Sebastian: "Hello."

Narrator: "Said the crab."

Sebastian: "I'm Sebastian. I'm plowing."

Pongo: "I'm Pongo. My ducks and I are taking passengers. What ugly hands you've got."

Sebastian: "They're not ugly! They're claws."

Narrator: "Said Sebastian."

Sebastian: "I can go anywhere. I don't need the road."

Pongo: "I don't want to go anywhere."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I like my road, thank you."

Narrator: "Winter came with dark clouds full of snow."

Pongo's Driver: "I don't like it."

Narrator: "Said Pongo's Driver."

Pongo's Driver: "A heavy fall is coming. I hope it doesn't stop us."

Pongo: "Puh!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Soft stuff. Nothing to it."

Narrator: "And he puffed on, feeling cold but confident.

They finished their journey safely, but by now, the country was covered."

Pongo's Driver: "You'll need your snow boots for the next journey, Pongo."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo: "Puh! Snow is silly soft stuff. It won't stop me."

Narrator: "The snow boots were heavy and uncomfortable and made Pongo cross. He shook them, and he banged them, and when he got back, they were so damaged that the driver had to take them off."

Pongo's Driver: "You're a very naughty dalmatian!"

Narrator: "He said to Pongo.

Next morning, Pongo's driver and fireman came early, and worked hard to mend the snow boots, but they couldn't make them fit.

Pongo was pleased."

Pongo: "I shan't have to wear them! I shan't have to wear them!"

Narrator: "He puffed to Abigal and Amelia. But they were rather worried."

Abigal and Amelia: "I hope it's all right. I hope it's all right."

Narrator: "They whispered to each other.

The driver was worried, too."

Pongo's Driver: "It's not bad here,"

Narrator: "He said to the fireman."

Pongo's Driver: "But it's sure to be deep in the valley!"

Pongo: "Silly soft stuff."

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo."

Pongo: "I didn't need those stupid things yesterday, and I shan't today. Snow can't stop me!"

Narrator: "He rushed into a tunnel, thinking how clever he was, but there was trouble ahead."

Pongo: "Paw prints and collar!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I'm stuck!"

Narrator: "And he was.

Pongo's Driver: "Back, Pongo, back!"

Narrator: "Said his driver.

Pongo tried, but his paws spun and he couldn't move.

The guard went back for help, while everyone else tried to dig the snow away. But as fast as they dug, more snow slid down until Pongo was nearly buried."

Pongo: "Oh my legs and tail! I shall have to stop here till' I'm frozen. What a silly dalmatian I am!"

Narrator: "And Pongo began to cry.

At last, a fox came to rescue the passengers, and then, who should come to Pongo's rescue but Sebastian! Snow never worries him.

He pulled the ducks away, then came back for Pongo.

Pongo's paws were clear, but still spun when he tried to move.

Sebastian tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged, and at last dragged Pongo clear of the snow, ready for the journey home."

Pongo: "Thank you, Sebastian. Your claws are splendid."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo's Driver: "I hope you'll be sensible now, Pongo."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo: "I'll try."

Narrator: "Said Pongo, and he puffed humbly away."

Pongo and Tod/Pongo and Tod's Great Race

Narrator: "Pongo was waiting at a junction when a fox arrived."

Pongo: "Hello,"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Who are you?"

Tod: "I'm Tod. Who are you?"

Pongo: "I'm Pongo. I run this route."

Tod: "So you're Pongo, eh? I remember now. You got stuck in the snow. I took your passengers and Sebastian the Crab pulled you out. I've come to help you with your passengers today."

Pongo: "Help me?"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I can go faster than you."

Tod: "You can't."

Narrator: "Said Tod."

Pongo: "I can!"

Narrator: "Huffed Pongo."

Tod: "I'll race you."

Narrator: "Said Tod.

Their drivers agreed to the race going ahead.

The stationmaster said,

Stationmaster: "Are you ready? Go!"

Narrator: "Pongo never could go fast at first, and Tod drew in front.

Abigal and Amelia: "Why don't you go fast? Why don't you go fast?"

Narrator: "Called Abigal and Amelia."

Pongo: "Wait and see, wait and see."

Narrator: "Hissed Pongo."

Abigal and Amelia: "He's a long way ahead!"

Narrator: "They wailed.

But Pongo didn't mind. He'd remembered the level crossing.

There was Tod, waiting at the gates, while they sailed gaily through."

Pongo: "Goodbye, Tod!"

Narrator: "Called Pongo.

After that, the paths left each other, so they couldn't see Tod.

Then, they had to stop at the station to let off passengers."

Pongo: "Ruff, ruff, ruff! Quickly, please!"

Narrator: "Called Pongo, and off they went again."

Pongo: "Come along, come along!"

Narrator: "Sang Pongo."

Abigal and Amelia: "We're coming along, we're coming along!"

Narrator: "Sang Abigal and Amelia."

Pongo: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Panted Pongo, then he looked ahead. There was Tod, calling triumphantly."

Pongo: "Oh, dearie me. Oh, dearie me."

Narrator: "Groaned Pongo."

Pongo's Driver: "Steady, Pongo."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "We'll beat Tod yet."

Abigal and Amelia: "We'll beat Tod yet, we'll beat Tod yet."

Narrator: "Echoed Abigal and Amelia."

Pongo: "We'll do it, we'll do it."

Narrator: "Panted Pongo."

Pongo: "Oh, bother! There's a station."

Narrator: "Then, he heard Tod."

Tod: "Goodbye, Pongo! You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop. We foxes have to work, you know. Good-bye."

Pongo: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "Thought Pongo."

Pongo: "We've lost."

Narrator: "But he felt better after a drink.

The signal dropped."

Pongo: "Hurrah, we're off! Hurrah, we're off!"

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo.

As they crossed the bridge, they heard an impatient call.

There was Tod, waiting at the traffic lights.

He started with a roar, and chased on after Pongo again.

Now, Pongo reached his full speed. Tod tried hard, but Pongo was too fast.

Barking triumphantly, he plunged into the tunnel, leaving Tod far behind."

Pongo: "I've done it! I've done it!"

Narrator: "Panted Pongo."

Abigal and Amelia: "We've done it, hooray! We've done it, hooray!"

Narrator: "Chanted Abigal and Amelia, as they whooshed into the last station.

Everyone was there to celebrate Pongo's victory, but they gave Tod a big welcome, too."

Tod: "Well done, Pongo!"

Narrator: "Said Tod."

Tod: "That was fun. But to beat you over that hill, I should have to grow wings and be an airplane!"

Narrator: "They now keep each other very busy. They often talk about their race. But Tod's passengers don't like being bounced like peas in a frying pan, and Mickey Mouse has warned Pongo not to race at dangerous speeds, so although, between you and me, they would like to have another race, I don't think they ever will, do you?"

Big Disney Characters and Turntables

Narrator: "Baloo and Sir Ector were lonely when Pongo left the yard to run his route. They missed him very much. They had more work to do and had to fetch their own flowers. They didn't like that.

Donald Duck grumbled too."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "We get no rest, we get no rest!"

Narrator: "They all complained, but the flowers only laughed."

Flowers: "You're lazy and slack, you're lazy and slack."

Narrator: "They answered.

All together, the Disney Characters were causing Mickey Mouse a great deal of trouble.

The big stations at both ends of the route each have a turntable. Mickey had made them so that the big Disney Characters can be turned around, because it is dangerous for them to go fast backwards.

Little Disney Characters, like Pongo, don't need turntables. They can go just as well backwards as forwards. But to hear Sir Ector talk, you would have thought that Mickey had made him big just to show how important he was."

Sir Ector: "You don't understand, little Pongo. We big Disney Characters have a position to keep up. It doesn't matter where you go, but we are important. And for Mickey Mouse to make us arrange pirates, fetch flowers and go on some of those dirty sidings. It's... it's... well, it's not the proper thing."

Narrator: "Pongo chuckled, and went off with Abigal and Amelia."

Sir Ector: "Disgraceful!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector hissed, as he went backwards to the turntable.

The turntable was in a windy place close to the sea. And if he was not on it just right, he put it out of balance and made it difficult to turn. Today, Sir Ector was in a bad temper, and the wind was blowing fiercely. His driver tried to make him stop in the right place, but Sir Ector wasn't trying. The fireman tried to turn the handle, but Sir Ector's weight and the strong winds prevented him."

Sir Ector's Driver and Fireman: "It's no good."

Narrator: "They said at last."

Sir Ector's Driver and Fireman: "You upset the balance. If you were a nice little Disney Character, you'd be alright. Now, you'll have to take the next line of flowers backwards."

Boys: "Look!"

Narrator: "Called some boys."

Boys: "There's a new little Disney Character. Oh, it's only Sir Ector back to front."

Pongo: "Hello."

Narrator: "Called Pongo."

Pongo: "Playing little Disney Characters? Sensible man. Take my advice, lose some weight and have some nice spots."

Narrator: "Sir Ector said nothing.

Even Donald laughed when he saw him."

Sir Ector: "Take care."

Narrator: "Hissed Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "You might stick too."

Donald Duck: "No fear."

Narrator: "Chuckled Donald."

Donald: "I'm not so fat as you.

I mustn't stick."

Narrator: "Thought Donald. He stopped on just the right place to balance to the table. It could now swing easily.

Sir Ector arrived in time to see everything.

Donald turned much too easily. The wind puffed him round like a top. He couldn't stop."

Sir Ector: "Well, well."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Are you playing roundabouts?"

Narrator: "Poor Donald, feeling quite giddy, rolled off into the house without a word.

That night, the three Disney Characters had an indignation meeting."

Sir Ector: "It's shameful to treat big Disney Characters like this! Sir Ector has to go backwards and people think he's a little Disney Character, Donald spins round like a top and everyone laughs at us. And to add to that, Mickey Mouse makes us all arrange in dirty sidings. Ugh!

Listen,"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector. He whispered something to the others."

Sir Ector: "We'll do it tomorrow. Mickey will look silly!"

Narrator: "The Disney Characters had decided to go on strike."

Trouble in the House

Narrator: "Mickey Mouse sat in his office listening to the noise outside. The passengers were angry. The stationmaster came in."

Stationmaster: "There's trouble in the house, sir. Baloo is sulking, there are no flowers and the passengers are saying this is a bad land."

Mickey Mouse: "Indeed."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "We cannot allow that."

Narrator: "He found Sir Ector, Donald Duck and Baloo looking very cross."

Mickey Mouse: "Come along, Baloo. It's time your flowers are ready."

Sir Ector: "Baloo's not going!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "We won't arrange like common Disney Characters. That was Pongo's job. We are important big Disney Characters. You fetch our flowers, and we will take them. Big Disney Characters don't arrange!"

Mickey Mouse: "Oh, indeed!"

Narrator: "Replied Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "We'll see about that. Characters on my land do as they are told."

Narrator: "And he hurried away to find Hercules."

Mickey Mouse: "The yard's never been the same since Pongo left to run his route."

Narrator: "He thought sadly.

Hercules was arranging pirates."

Mickey Mouse: "Leave those pirates please, Hercules."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "I want you to fetch flowers for me in the yard."

Hercules: "Thank you, sir. That will be a nice change."

Mickey Mouse: "That's a good man. Off you go then."

Narrator: "So Hercules found flowers for the big Disney Characters and that day the lines ran as usual.

But next morning, Hercules looked unhappy. Sir Ector came clanking past kicking dirt as usual."

Mickey Mouse: "Bless me!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "What a noise!"

Hercules: "They all kicked dirt at me, sir."

Narrator: "Answered Hercules."

Hercules: "They say big Disney Characters don't arrange, and last night, they said I have black shoes. I haven't, have I sir?"

Mickey Mouse: "No, Hercules. You have nice brown ones, and I'm proud of you. Big Disney Characters do arrange. But all the same, we do need another little Disney Character here."

Narrator: "We went to a workshop, and they showed him all sorts of characters.

At last, we saw a nice little pink piglet with big ears."

Mickey Mouse: "That's the one."

Narrator: "He thought."

Mickey Mouse: "If I choose you, will you work hard?"

Piglet: "Oh, sir. Yes, sir."

Mickey Mouse: "That's a good character. I'll call you 'Piglet'."

Piglet: "Yes, sir. Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Piglet. And Mickey brought him back to the yard."

Mickey Mouse: "Hercules,"

Narrator: "He called."

Mickey Mouse: "Here's Piglet. Will you show him everything?"

Narrator: "Piglet soon learned what he had to do, and they had a happy afternoon.

Then, Baloo came by, kicking as usual."

Piglet: "Wheesh!"

Narrator: "Went Piglet. Baloo jumped and ran back to the house."

Hercules: "How beautifully you wheeshed him."

Narrator: "Laughed Hercules."

Hercules: "I can't wheesh like that."

Piglet: "Oh."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "That's nothing. You should here them in the workshop. You have to wheesh loudly to make yourself heard."

Narrator: "Next morning, Pongo arrived."

Pongo: "Mickey Mouse sent for me. I expect he wants help."

Narrator: "He said to Hercules."

Hercules: "Sh. Here he comes."

Narrator: "Replied Hercules."

Mickey Mouse: "Well done, Pongo. You've been quick. Listen, Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald are sulking. They say they won't arrange like common Disney Characters. So I have shut them up, and I want you both to run the path for a while."

Pongo: "Common Disney Characters, indeed!"

Narrator: "Snorted Pongo."

Pongo: "We'll show them!"

Mickey Mouse: "And Piglet will help too."

Piglet: "Oh, sir. Yes, sir. Please, sir."

Narrator: "Answered Piglet.

Hercules and Pongo worked the main path, greeting each other as they pass by. Piglet puffed along the branch path. Pongo was anxious about Abigal and Amelia, but both driver and guard promised to take care of them.

There were fewer lines of flowers, but the passengers didn't mind. They knew that three other Disney Characters were having a lesson.

Sir Ector, Donald and Baloo were cold, lonely and miserable. They wished now they hadn't been so silly."

Piglet Runs Away

Narrator: "Baloo, Donald and Sir Ector were miserable. They had been shut up for several day for being naughty, and long to be let out again.

At last, Mickey Mouse arrived."

Mickey Mouse: "I hope you are sorry."

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "And understand that you are not so important after all. We have a new Disney Character called Piglet, who helps pull flowers, and Pongo and Hercules have worked the main path nicely. But I will let you out now if you promise to be good."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said the three Disney Characters."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "We will."

Mickey Mouse: "That's right, but please remember that this no arranging nonsense must stop."

Narrator: "He then told Piglet, Hercules and Pongo that they can go and play on the branch path for a few days. And they ran off happily to find Abigal and Amelia at the junction.

The two ducks were so pleased to see Pongo again.

Hercules and Piglet played with the pirates."

Pirates: "Stop, stop, stop!"

Narrator: "Screamed the pirates, as they were pushed into their proper sidings, but the two Disney Characters laughed and went on arranging till the pirates were tightly arranged.

Next, Hercules took some pirates to the quarry. Piglet was left alone. He didn't mind that a bit. He liked watching Disney Characters and being cheeky to them."

Piglet: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "He would call, and they got very cross.

After a great deal of arranging, Piglet was waiting for the signalman to set the path so that he can get back to the yard. He was eager, but was being rather careless and not paying attention. Hercules had warned Piglet."

Hercules: "Be careful on the main path. Whistle to the signalman you are there."

Narrator: "But Piglet didn't remember to whistle, so the busy signalman forgot him.

Piglet waited and waited. The path was still against him so he couldn't move. Then he looked along the main path."

Piglet: "Peep, peep!"

Narrator: "He whistled in horror, for rushing straight towards him was Sir Ector with the express."

Sir Ector: "Ohhh!"

Narrator: "Groaned Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Get out of my way!"

Narrator: "Piglet opened his eyes. Sir Ector had stopped just a few inches from him. But Piglet had began to move."

Piglet: "I won't stay here. I'll run away!"

Narrator: "He puffed.

He ran straight through Hercules' station, and was so frightened that he ran right up Sir Ector's hill without stopping.

After that, he was tired, but he couldn't stop. He had no driver to stop him."

Piglet: "I want to stop, I want to stop."

Narrator: "He puffed.

The man in the signalbox saw that Piglet was in trouble. So kindly, he set the path. Piglet puffed wearily onto a nice empty siding, ending in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to care where he want."

Piglet: "I want to stop, I want to stop. I have stopped."

Narrator: "He puffed thankfully."

Workmen: "Never mind, Piglet."

Narrator: "Said the workmen, as they dug him out."

Workmen: "You shall have a drink and a snack, and then you'll feel better."

Narrator: "Presently, Sir Ector arrived."

Sir Ector: "Well done, Piglet. You started so quickly that you stopped a nasty accident."

Piglet: "I'm sorry I was cheeky."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "You were clever to stop."

Narrator: "Then Sir Ector helped pull Piglet out from the bank.

Piglet is still cheeky because he is that sort of Disney Character, but he is always most careful when he goes out on the main path."

Medicine/Baloo's Special Medicine

Narrator: "One morning, Baloo was feeling very sorry for himself. Sometimes he could work, but sometimes he had no strength at all."

Baloo: "I suffer dreadfully and no one cares."

Donald Duck: "Rubbish, Baloo!"

Narrator: "Snorted Donald."

Donald Duck: "You don't work hard enough!"

Narrator: "Mickey Mouse spoke to him too."

Mickey Mouse: "You're too expensive, Baloo. You've had lots of new parts and new fur too, but they've done you no good. If we can't make you better, we must get another Disney Character instead of you."

Narrator: "This made Baloo, his driver and his fireman very sad.

Mickey was waiting when Baloo came to the platform. He had taken off his shorts and put on overalls.

Baloo managed to start, but his fireman was not satisfied."

Baloo's Fireman: "Baloo is a bad puller."

Narrator: "He said to Mickey."

Baloo's Fireman: "I gave him his food, but it doesn't give enough strength."

Narrator: "Baloo tried very hard, but it was no good. He didn't have enough strength, and came to a stop right outside Hercules' station."

Baloo: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Thought Baloo."

Baloo: "I shall have to go away. Oh dear, oh dear!"

Narrator: "All he could do was to go slowly onto a siding and Hercules took charge of the flowers.

Mickey and the fireman went on discussing Baloo's troubles."

Mickey Mouse: "What do you think is wrong, fireman?"

Narrator: "Asked Mickey."

Baloo's Fireman: "Excuse me, sir."

Narrator: "He said."

Baloo's Fireman: "But the fact is the medicine is wrong. We've had a poor lot lately, and today it's worst. The other Disney Characters can manage. They have big stomachs. Baloo's is small and can't make the strength. With Welsh medicine, he'd be a different bear."

Mickey Mouse: "It's expensive."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "But Baloo must have a fair chance. Donald shall go and fetch some."

Narrator: "When the Welsh medicine arrived, Baloo's driver and fireman were excited."

Baloo's Driver: "Now we'll show them, Baloo old fellow!"

Narrator: "They carefully gave him his medicine giving him small bits at a time."

Baloo: "You're spoiling my body!"

Narrator: "Complained Baloo."

Baloo's Fireman: "Wait and see."

Narrator: "Said the fireman."

Baloo's Fireman: "You'll have a roaring body just when we want it."

Narrator: "The fireman was right. When Baloo reached the platform, his body was good and healthy, and he had to cheer out loud."

Mickey Mouse: "How are you, Baloo?"

Baloo: "Peep, peep!"

Narrator: "Whistled Baloo."

Baloo: "I feel fine!"

Mickey Mouse: "Have you a good body, driver?"

Baloo's Driver: "Never better, sir, and plenty of strength."

Mickey Mouse: "No record breaking."

Narrator: "Warned Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Don't push him too hard."

Baloo's Driver: "Baloo won't need pushing, sir. I'll have to hold him back."

Narrator: "Baloo had a lovely day. He had never felt so well in his life. He wanted to go fast, but his driver wouldn't let him."

Baloo's Driver: "Steady, old fellow."

Narrator: "He would say."

Baloo's Driver: "There's plenty of time."

Narrator: "They arrived early at the station. Pongo came in."

Baloo: "Where have you been, lazybones?"

Narrator: "Asked Baloo."

Baloo: "Oh, I can't wait for dawdling dalmatians, like you. Goodbye!"

Pongo: "Whoosh!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo to the ducks."

Pongo: "Have you ever seen anything like it?"

Narrator: "Both Abigail and Amelia agreed that they never had."

The Flying Kipper

Narrator: "One winter evening, Baloo's driver said."

Baloo's Driver: "We'll be out early tomorrow. We've got to take the Flying Kipper. Don't tell Sir Ector, but I think if we pull the kipper nicely, Mickey Mouse will let us take the express flowers. The special medicine they gave you is working well."

Baloo: "Hurrah!"

Narrator: "Cried Baloo."

Baloo: "That will be lovely."

Narrator: "All kinds of ships use the harbor at the big station by the sea. There are passenger ships, cargo ships and fishing boats also come here. They unload their fish on the key. Some of it goes to shops in the town, and the rest are given to special monkeys to other places faraway. This is the line of monkeys that the men call 'The Flying Kipper'.

Baloo was ready at 5'o clock. There was snow and frost. Men hustled and shouted giving the monkeys the crates of fish. The last door banged, the guard showed his green lamp, the Flying Kipper was ready to go."

Baloo: "Come on, come on! Don't be silly, don't be silly!"

Narrator: "Huffed Baloo to the monkeys. The monkeys shuttered and groaned."

Monkeys: "Trock-trick, trock-trick! Alright, alright!"

Baloo: "That is better, that is better!"

Narrator: "Puffed Baloo.

Clouds of smoke and steam poured into the cold air, and the lamp shown brightly."

Baloo: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Panted Baloo.

They were going well. The light grew better, signal lights showed green as they past.

Then, a yellow signal appeared ahead. His driver prepared to stop, but the home signal was down."

Baloo's Driver: "All clear, Baloo. Away we go."

Narrator: "They couldn't know that the points from the main path to a siding were frozen. And the home signal should've been set at danger. But snow had forced it down.

A goods load was waiting in the siding to let the Flying Kipper past. And the driver and the fireman were drinking cocoa with the guard."

Guard: "The kipper is due."

Narrator: "Said the guard."

Fireman: "Who cares?"

Narrator: "Said the fireman."

Fireman: "This is good cocoa!"

Narrator: "The driver got up."

Driver: "Come on, fireman. Back to our Disney Character."

Narrator: "They got out just in time."

(CRASH!)

Narrator: "Baloo's driver and fireman had jumped clear before the crash. But Baloo lay dazed and surprised.

Mickey Mouse came to see him."

Baloo: "The signal was down, sir."

Narrator: "Said Baloo."

Mickey Mouse: "Cheer up, Baloo. It wasn't your fault. Ice and snow caused the accident. I'm sending you to Crewe, a fine place for sick Disney Characters. They'll give you a new shape and a larger stomach. You'll feel a different bear and won't need special medicine anymore. Won't that be nice?"

Baloo: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Baloo doubtfully.

Baloo liked being at Crewe, but was glad to come home.

A crowd of people waited to see him arrive in his new shape. He looked so splendid and strong that they gave him three cheers."

Baloo: "Peep, peep!"

Narrator: "He whistled."

Baloo: "Thank you very much."

Narrator: "I'm sorry to say that a lot of little children are often late for school because they wait to see Baloo go by. They often see him pulling the express flowers. He does it so well that Sir Ector is jealous. But that's another story."

Whistles and Sneezes

Narrator: "Sir Ector was cross."

Sir Ector: "Why should Baloo have a new shape?"

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Sir Ector: "A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off to Crewe leaving us to do his work, and comes back saying how happy he feels. It's disgraceful!

And there's another thing; Baloo whistles too much! No respectable Disney Character ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it!"

Narrator: "Poor Baloo didn't feel happy anymore."

Piglet: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Whispered Piglet."

Piglet: "I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling."

Sir Ector: "Goodbye, Baloo."

Narrator: "Called Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said."

Narrator: "Later, Baloo stopped at Hercules' station."

Hercules: "Hello, Baloo."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday."

Baloo: "Thank you, Hercules."

Narrator: "Smiled Baloo"

Baloo: "Shh, shh. Can you hear something?"

Hercules: "It sounds like Sir Ector."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "And it ought to be Sir Ector. But Sir Ector never whistles like that."

Narrator: "It was Sir Ector. He came rushing down the hill at a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Baloo, and he didn't look at Hercules. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared."

Hercules: "Well."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Baloo: "It isn't wrong."

Narrator: "Chuckled Baloo."

Baloo: "But we just don't do it."

Narrator: "And he told Hercules what Sir Ector had said.

Meanwhile, Sir Ector screeched along the road. The noise was awful.

At the station, everyone held their ears. Mickey Mouse held his ears too."

Mickey Mouse: "Take him away!"

Narrator: "He bellowed."

Mickey Mouse: "And stop that noise!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector walked sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters knocked his whistle in place.

That night, Sir Ector slunked into the house. He was glad it was empty."

Baloo: "It isn't wrong."

Narrator: "Murmured Baloo to no one in particular."

Baloo: "But we just don't do it."

Narrator: "No one mentioned whistles.

Next morning, Baloo was enjoying himself enormously."

Baloo: "I feel so well, I feel so well."

Narrator: "He sang."

Flowers: "Trickety-trock, trickety-trock."

Narrator: "Hummed his flowers.

Then he saw some boys on a bridge."

Baloo: "Peep, peep! Hello."

Narrator: "He whistled."

Baloo: "Oh!"

Narrator: "He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number. They thought it fun to drop stones on him instead."

Flowers: "They've broken our pedals, they've broken our pedals!"

Narrator: "Sobbed the flowers.

The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross."

Passengers: "Call the police!"

Baloo's Driver: "No!"

Narrator: "Said the driver."

Baloo's Driver: "Leave it to Baloo and me."

Passengers: "What will you do?"

Narrator: "They asked."

Baloo's Driver: "Can you keep a secret?"

Passengers: "Yes, yes."

Baloo's Driver: "Well then."

Narrator: "Said the driver."

Baloo's Driver: "Baloo is going to sneeze at those boys."

Narrator: "Lots of people were waiting at the station just before the bridge. They wanted to see what would happen."

Baloo's Driver: "Baloo has plenty of dust."

Narrator: "Said the driver."

Baloo: "Please duck down until we've passed the bridge. Baloo is as excited as we are, aren't you old fellow?"

Narrator: "Baloo was feeling stuffed up.

Soon they could see the boys, and they all had stones."

Baloo's Driver: "Are you ready, Baloo?"

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Baloo's Driver: "Sneeze hard when I tell you.

Now!"

Narrator: "He said."

Baloo: "Atishoo!"

Baloo's Driver: "Well done, Baloo!"

Narrator: "Laughed his driver.

Baloo went home very pleased with himself. He had taught Sir Ector and silly boys a lesson, with a whistle and a sneeze."

Friar Tuck and the Stout Mouse/Friar Tuck the Badger

Narrator: "Friar Tuck is a badger. He wears a brown robe, and doesn't look like a dalmatian at all. He takes rhino guards from farms and factories to the main path, and is cheerful to everyone he meets.

He has a princess called Jasmine, who has seen better days."

Jasmine: "It's not fair at all!"

Narrator: "She grumbles, remembering that she used to be full and nine rhino guards would rattle behind her.

Now, there are only three or four, for the farms and factories send their goods mostly by lorry.

Friar Tuck is always careful. The cars, buses and lorries often have accidents. Friar Tuck hasn't had an accident in years, but the buses are crowded and Jasmine is empty.

A lady and a stout mouse stood on Friar Tuck's platform. He was, of course, Mickey Mouse, but Friar Tuck didn't know this yet."

Michael and Jane Banks: "Come on, grandfather!"

Narrator: "Cried the children."

Michael and Jane Banks: "Do look at this Disney Character."

Mickey Mouse: "That's a badger, Michael."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Jane Banks: "Is it electric?"

Narrator: "Asked Jane."

Friar Tuck: "Whoosh!"

Narrator: "Hissed Friar Tuck."

Michael Banks: "Sh, sh."

Narrator: "Said her brother."

Michael Banks: "You've offended him."

Jane Banks: "But badgers are electric, aren't they?"

Mickey Mouse: "They are mostly, but this is a merry man badger."

Michael and Jane Banks: "May we go with him, grandfather, please?"

Mickey Mouse: "Stop!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey to the guard, they all gathered with Jasmine."

Jasmine: "Hip, hip hooray!"

Narrator: "Chanted Jasmine, but Friar Tuck didn't sing."

Friar Tuck: "Electric indeed, electric indeed!"

Narrator: "He snorted. He was very hurt."

Mickey Mouse: "What is your name?"

Narrator: "Asked Mickey."

Friar Tuck: "Friar Tuck, sir."

Mickey Mouse: "Thank you, Friar Tuck for a very nice walk."

Friar Tuck: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck. He felt better now."

Friar Tuck: "This mouse,"

Narrator: "He thought."

Friar Tuck: "Is a mouse who knows how to speak to Disney Characters."

Narrator: "The children came everyday for a fortnight. Sometimes they walked with the guard, sometimes with empty rhino guards. On the last day of all, the driver invited them up front.

All were sorry when they had to go away. And Mickey and his family thanked everyone."

Friar Tuck: "Come again soon."

Narrator: "Replied Friar Tuck."

Michael and Jane Banks: "We will, we will."

Narrator: "Called the children. And they waved till Friar Tuck was out of sight.

The months past, Friar Tuck had few rhino guards and fewer passengers."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "Our last day, Friar Tuck."

Narrator: "Said his driver one morning."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "The manager says we must close tomorrow."

Narrator: "That day, everyone wanted a chance of a last walk. The passengers joked and sang, but Friar Tuck and his driver wished they wouldn't."

Passengers: "Goodbye, Friar Tuck."

Narrator: "Said the passengers afterwards."

Passengers: "We are sorry your path is closing down."

Friar Tuck: "So am I."

Narrator: "Sighed Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "Nobody wants me."

Narrator: "Friar Tuck thought, and went unhappily to sleep.

Next morning, the door was flung open and he woke with a start to see his driver waving a piece of paper at him."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "Wake up, Friar Tuck!"

Narrator: "He shouted excitedly."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "The mail has just arrived and there's a letter for us from the stout gentleman."

Narrator: "Friar Tuck listened and... but I mustn't tell you anymore, or I shall spoil the next story."

Pongo in Trouble/Pongo Breaks the Rules

Narrator: "There's a path to a quarry at the end of Pongo's route. It goes for some distance along the road. Pongo was very careful to bark here in case anyone was coming.

Early one morning, a large cat named Pete was standing close to the path. Pongo liked cats. He had been a great friend of the cat who had just retired."

Pongo: "Ruff, ruff!"

Narrator: "He barked."

Pongo: "Good morning!"

Narrator: "Pongo expected that Pete would be friendly too, but was sorry to see that he didn't looked friendly at all. He was red in the face and very cross."

Pete: "Disgraceful!"

Narrator: "He spluttered."

Pete: "I didn't sleep a wink last night. It was so quietly, and now dalmatians come barking suddenly behind me."

Pongo: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I only said good morning."

Narrator: "Pete pointed to Pongo."

Pete: "Where's your cowcatcher?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Pongo: "But I don't catch cows, sir."

Pete: "Don't be funny!"

Narrator: "Snapped Pete. He looked at Pongo's body."

Pete: "No robe either!"

Narrator: "And he wrote in his notebook."

Pete: "Disney Characters going on public roads must wear a robe to protect people and animals from being dragged underneath if they should stray onto the path.

You haven't so you are dangerous!"

Pongo's Driver: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo's driver."

Pongo's Driver: "We've been along here hundreds of times and never had an accident."

Pete: "That makes it worst!"

Narrator: "Pete answered. He wrote 'Regular Law Breaker' in his book. Pongo puffed sadly away.

Mickey Mouse was having breakfast. He was eating toast and marmalade. Winston came in."

Winston: "Excuse me, sir. You are wanted on the telephone."

Mickey Mouse: "Bother that telephone!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

(Phone chattering)

Mickey Mouse: "I'm sorry, my dear."

Narrator: "He said to Minnie Mouse."

Mickey Mouse: "Pongo is in trouble with Pete and I must go at once."

Narrator: "As the station, Pongo's driver told Mickey what had happened."

Mickey Mouse: "Dangerous to the public indeed? We'll see about that."

Narrator: "Mickey spoke to Pete, but however much he argued with him, it was no good."

Pete: "The law is the law!"

Narrator: "He said."

Pete: "And we can't change it!"

Narrator: "Mickey felt exhausted."

Mickey Mouse: "I'm sorry, driver."

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "It's no use arguing with Pete. We will have to make that robe thing for Pongo I suppose."

Pongo: "Everyone will laugh, sir."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "They'll say I look like a badger."

Narrator: "Mickey stared, then he laughed."

Mickey Mouse: "Well done, Pongo! Why didn't I think of it before? We want a badger. When I was on my holiday, I met a nice little badger called Friar Tuck. He takes rhino guards from the farms, but the lorries are taking over most of his work and he needs a change. He has a cowcatcher and a robe. I'll write to his controller at once."

Narrator: "A few days later, Friar Tuck arrived."

Mickey Mouse: "That's a good badger."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "I see you brought your princess, Jasmine."

Friar Tuck: "You don't mind, do you, sir?"

Narrator: "Asked Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "The stationmaster wanted to use her as a hen house, and that would never do."

Mickey Mouse: "No, indeed."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "We couldn't allow that."

Narrator: "Friar Tuck made the silly rhino guards behave even better than Pongo did."

(Friar Tuck rings his bell)

Pete: "Oy you!"

Narrator: "At first, Pongo was jealous. But he was so pleased when Friar Tuck ranged his bell and frightened Pete, they've been firmed friends ever since."

Dirty Objects/Donald in a Mess

Narrator: "Friar Tuck and Jasmine are enjoying their new job in Disneyland, but they do look old fashioned and need new coats.

Donald Duck was very rude whenever he saw them."

Donald Duck: "Ugh. What dirty objects."

Narrator: "He would say.

At last, Friar Tuck lost patience."

Friar Tuck: "Donald,"

Narrator: "He asked."

Friar Tuck: "Why are you white?"

Donald Duck: "I am a splendid duck."

Narrator: "Answered Donald."

Donald Duck: "Ready for anything. You never see me dirty."

Friar Tuck: "Oh,"

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck innocently."

Friar Tuck: "That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready, I suppose."

Narrator: "Donald went redder than ever and snorted off. It was such an insult to be reminded of the time a bootlace had been used to mend a hole in his flowers.

At the end of the line, Donald left his flowers and got ready for his next load. It was a slow goods, stopping at every station to pick up and set down pirates. Donald hated slow goods runs."

Donald Duck: "Dirty pirates from dirty sidings.

Yecch!"

Narrator: "Starting with only a few, he pickled up more and more pirates at each station, till he had a long line.

At first, the pirates behaved well, but Donald bumped them so crossly, that they were determined to pay him back.

Presently, they approached the top of Sir Ector's hill. Heavy goods Disney Characters halt here to pin down their brakes. Donald had had an accident with pirates before, and should have remembered this."

Donald Duck's Driver: "Wait, Donald, wait!"

Narrator: "Said the driver, but Donald wouldn't wait. He was too busy thinking what he'd say to Friar Tuck when they next met.

The pirates' chance had come."

Pirates: "Hurrah! Hurrah!"

Narrator: "They laughed, and banging each other, they pushed him down the hill."

Pirates: "On! On! On!"

Narrator: "Laughed the pirates."

Donald Duck: "I've got to stop! I've got to stop!"

Narrator: "Groaned Donald.

Through the station they thundered, disaster lay ahead."

(CRASH!)

"Something sticky splashed all over Donald. He had run into two tar barrels, and was black from head to toe. He was more dirty than hurt, but the tar barrels and some pirates were all to pieces.

Friar Tuck and Piglet were sent to help, and came as quickly as they could."

Friar Tuck: "Look here, Piglet,"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "Whatever is that dirty object?"

Piglet: "That's Donald Duck, didn't you know?"

Friar Tuck: "It's Donald's shape,"

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "But Donald is a splendid white duck, and you never see him dirty."

Narrator: "Donald pretended he hadn't heard.

Friar Tuck and Piglet cleared away the unhurt pirates, and helped Donald home.

Mickey Mouse met them."

Mickey Mouse: "Well done, Piglet and Friar Tuck!"

Narrator: "He turned to Donald."

Mickey Mouse: "Fancy letting your pirates run away, I am surprised. You're not fit to be seen, you must be cleaned at once!

Friar Tuck shall have a new coat."

Friar Tuck: "Please, sir, can Jasmine have one, too?"

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."

Mickey Mouse: "Certainly, Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "Oh, thank you, sir. She will be pleased!"

Narrator: "All Donald could do was watch Friar Tuck as he ran off happily with the news."

Off the Road/Sir Ector Takes a Dip

Narrator: "Sir Ector was resting in a siding."

Sir Ector: "Sometimes,"

Narrator: "He thought."

Sir Ector: "It's very tiring to be such a large and splendid man. One does have to keep up appearances so."

Baloo: "Peep, peep, peep, peep! Hello, fat face!"

Narrator: "Whistled Baloo."

Sir Ector: "What cheek!"

Narrator: "Spluttered Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "That Baloo is too big for his feet. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me, who has never had an accident."

Piglet: "Aren't jammed whistles and pulled muscles accidents?"

Narrator: "Asked Piglet innocently."

Sir Ector: "No, indeed. High spirits, might happen to any Disney Character. But to come off the road like Baloo did, well I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?"

Narrator: "Then it was Baloo's turned to take the express. Sir Ector watched him getting ready."

Sir Ector: "Be careful, Baloo. You're not pulling the Flying Kipper now. Mind you keep on the road today."

Narrator: "Baloo went off in a huff, and Sir Ector yawned and went to sleep. But not for long."

Sir Ector's Driver: "Wake up, Sir Ector."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Sir Ector's Driver: "A special load's coming and we're to take it."

Sir Ector: "Is it flowers or pirates?"

Sir Ector's Driver: "Pirates."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Sir Ector: "Pirates?"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector's body was slow to start. So Hercules had to helped Sir Ector to the turntable to get him facing the right way."

Sir Ector: "I won't go, I won't go!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector."

Hercules: "Don't be silly, don't be silly."

Narrator: "Puffed Hercules.

At last, Sir Ector was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his body. It was now moving nicely.

Sir Ector was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was half way around."

Sir Ector: "I'll show them, I'll show them!"

Narrator: "He hissed.

He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slid into a ditch."

Sir Ector: "Oosh!"

Narrator: "He hissed."

Sir Ector: "Get me out, get me out!"

Sir Ector's Driver and Fireman: "Not a hope."

Narrator: "Said his driver and fireman."

Sir Ector's Driver and Fireman: "You're stuck you silly great man. Don't you understand that?"

Narrator: "They telephoned Mickey Mouse."

Mickey Mouse: "So Sir Ector didn't want to take the load and ran into a ditch?

What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Hercules to take it, please. And Sir Ector? Oh, leave him where he is. We haven't time to bother with him now."

Narrator: "On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering."

Boys: "Cool! Doesn't he look silly? They'll never get him out."

Narrator: "They began to sing."

Boys: "Silly old Ector fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch! Silly old Ector fell in a ditch, all on a Monday morning!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector laid in the ditch all day."

Sir Ector: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "He thought."

Sir Ector: "I shall never get out."

Narrator: "But that evening, they lifted Sir Ector, and made a roll of sleepers under his feet to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and Donald and Baloo, pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety.

Late that night, Sir Ector crawled home, a sadder and wiser man."

Down the Mine

Narrator: "One day, Pongo was at the junction, when Sir Ector shuffled in with some pirates."

Pongo: "Phew!"

Narrator: "Remarked Pongo."

Pongo: "What a funny smell.

Can you smell a smell?"

Abigail: "I can't smell a smell."

Narrator: "Said Abigail."

Pongo: "A funny, musty sort of smell."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Sir Ector: "No one noticed it till' you did."

Narrator: "Grunted Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "It must be yours."

Narrator: "Not long ago, he had fallen in a dirty ditch. Pongo enjoyed teasing him about it."

Pongo: "Abigail, Amelia, do you know what I think it is? It's ditchwater."

Narrator: "Before Sir Ector could answer, Pongo puffed away.

Abigail and Amelia could hardly believe their ears."

Abigail and Amelia: "He's dreadfully rude, I feel quite ashamed. I feel quite ashamed, he's dreadfully rude."

Narrator: "And to Pongo, they said,"

Abigail and Amelia: "You mustn't be rude, you make us ashamed."

Narrator: "But Pongo didn't care a bit."

Pongo: "That was funny. That was funny."

Narrator: "He chuckled. He felt very pleased with himself.

Abigail and Amelia were deeply shocked. They had great respect for Sir Ector the Man.

Pongo left the ducks at the station, and went off to a mine for some pirates.

Long ago, miners digging for lead had made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up pirates, but not the weight of Disney Characters. A large notice warns them not to enter the area.

Danger! Disney Characters must not pass this board."

Pongo: "Silly old board."

Narrator: "Thought Pongo.

He had often tried to pass it, but had never succeeded, but this morning, he made a plan.

The fireman went to turn the points."

Pongo: "Now for my plan."

Narrator: "Thought Pongo.

Bumping the pirates fiercely, he jerked his driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding."

Pongo's Driver: "Come back!"

Narrator: "Yelled his driver."

Pongo: "Fire and smoke!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I'm sunk!"

Narrator: "And he was."

Pongo: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "He said."

Pongo: "I am a silly dalmatian."

Mickey Mouse: "And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey Mouse."

Pongo: "Please get me out, I won't be naughty again!"

Mickey Mouse: "I'm not sure. We can't lift you out with a crane. The ground's not firm enough.

Hmmm. Let me see. I wonder if Sir Ector could pull you out."

Pongo: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Pongo, but he didn't want to meet Sir Ector just yet."

Sir Ector: "Down a mine, is he? Ha, ha, ha!"

Narrator: "Laughed Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "What a joke!

All right, little Pongo, we'll have you out in a couple of puffs!"

Narrator: "Strong cables were fastened between the two Disney Characters."

Mickey Mouse: "Are you ready?

Heave!"

Narrator: "It was a lot harder than they all thought, but at last, Pongo was free.

Pongo: "I'm sorry I was cheeky."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Sir Ector: "That's alright, Pongo. You made me laugh."

Narrator: "Replied Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "I'm in disgrace."

Pongo: "So am I."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Sir Ector: "Why so you are, Pongo. Shall we form an alliance? You help me, and I'll help you."

Pongo: "Right you are!"

Narrator: "Agreed Pongo."

Sir Ector: "Good, that's settled."

Narrator: "Rumbled Sir Ector.

And hand to hand, the allies puffed home."

Pongo's Christmas Party

Narrator: "It was Christmas in Disneyland. All the Disney Characters were working hard. Pongo and Friar Tuck were busy carrying people and parcels up and down the branch paths. Everyone was happy.

Only the ducks, Abigail and Amelia were complaining."

Abigail and Amelia: "It's always the same before Christmas."

Narrator: "They groaned."

Abigail and Amelia: "We feel so full, we feel so full."

Pongo: "Oh, come on!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Where's your festive spirit? Christmas day is almost here."

Narrator: "By the side of the path was a lonely little cottage with a familiar figure waving to them."

Pongo: "It's Mary Poppins!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo"

Pongo: "Happy Christmas!"

Narrator: "Pongo always felt better for seeing her."

Pongo: "Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without Mary Poppins."

Narrator: "When work was over, Pongo went to see the other Disney characters. All their coats had been cleaned."

Sir Ector: "Hah!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Just look at us. Your driver will have to work fast to get you as smart as us."

Pongo: "Never mind that."

Narrator: "Replied Pongo."

Pongo: "I've something important to say. Do you realize it's been a whole year since Mary Poppins saved us from a nasty accident?

You remember when she was ill in bed and,"

Hercules: "Yes, of course."

Narrator: "Interrupted Hercules."

Hercules: "You told us how she waved her red dressing gown out of her window to warn you about a landslide ahead."

Piglet: "And you and Friar Tuck gave her presents."

Narrator: "Piglet joined in."

Piglet: "And Mickey Mouse sent her to Bournemouth to get better."

Donald Duck and Baloo: "But,"

Narrator: "Said Donald and Baloo together."

Donald Duck and Baloo: "The rest of us have never thanked her properly."

Pongo: "Exactly."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "So now I think we should all give her a special Christmas party."

Narrator: "Everyone was getting very excited and the drivers felt sure that Mickey would agree, as indeed he did. The Disney characters were all busy making plans when silence fell.

Mickey Mouse had bad news."

Mickey Mouse "The weather's changed badly. Mary Poppins is snowed up. Friar Tuck says he'll help to rescue her. You must help too, Pongo. There's no party unless you do."

Narrator: "Pongo hated snow, but he said bravely."

Pongo: "I'll try, sir. We must rescue her, we must."

Mickey Mouse: "There's a good dalmatian. You and Friar Tuck will manage splendidly."

Narrator: "Pongo charged the snowdrifts fiercely. Sometimes he swept them aside, sometimes they stuck fast and the men had to loosen them.

But at the cutting near the cottage, they could go no further."

Pongo's Fireman: "Look at that!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Pongo's fireman."

Pongo: "Here we are!"

Narrator: "Called Pongo. An answering wave came from an upstairs window.

Then they heard a familiar sound."

Pongo: "That's Sebastian the Crab."

Narrator: "Said Pongo"

Pongo: "He's come to help too."

Narrator: "Sure enough, Sebastian was working hard to clear a path to the road and safety.

At long last, the rescue was complete. Piglet took the tired workmen home. Sebastian said goodbye to Mary Poppins and promised to take care of her cottage as he watched them all set off.

The Disney characters made good time. No more snow had fallen, but the yard was dark. Pongo's heart sank.

Suddenly, all the lights came on. What a marvelous site awaited Mary Poppins."

Mickey Mouse: "Well done!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "I'm really proud of you all."

Narrator: "Mary Poppins especially thanked the smaller Disney characters."

Mary Poppins: "Pongo and Friar Tuck are old friends."

Narrator: "She said."

Mary Poppins: "And now Piglet, you are my friend too."

Narrator: "Piglet was very pleased."

Piglet: "Three cheers for Mary Poppins!"

Narrator: "He called."

Piglet: "Hooray, hooray, hooray!"

Narrator: "They all cheered."

Disney Characters: "We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!"

Narrator: "Pongo and his friends thought it was the best Christmas ever, and Mary Poppins could think of nowhere she would rather live than here with them in Disneyland."
